Will my nose thin out on the sides that connect to the cheeks after rhino or did the doctor widen my nose accidentally? (Photo)

I just wanted my old nose back and I had a rhinoplasty and even after 4 months and a lot of swelling subsiding I'm definitely livid over my results. The Surgeon somehow ended up widening my entire nose not just the nostrils and did a sloppy job restitching the bottom of my nose where they opened it up to operate. I'm including a picture of my nose before the trauma and breaks (which is what I wanted my nose to look like post-op) and what I got at four months of healing.

Your nose is definitely wider than what I think it should be. I would encourage you to see your surgeon and discuss this issue.

I am so sorry to hear that you are unhappy with your results. I would suggest that you wait another 2 months and then, if you still don't like your results, schedule an appointment to discuss revision options with your surgeon or with another board certified plastic surgeon in your area.
